The article examines the implications of the Arizona Corporation Commission's decision to end its examination of the viability of two in-state wind generation projects that were rejected by Arizona Public Service Co. in an RFP for renewable energy sources. It is observed that there should be a level playing field and that the evaluation of wind projects must occur pursuant to a fair and transparent procedure.
